London-based FrameTrunk reports that they have found success supplying next generation broadcast solutions for a number of remote production projects during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Two of the projects that turned to FrameTrunk for support included BBC 3’s Yung Filly’s Celeb Lock In and Globe Productions’ One Love Covid-19 Relief Auction.
The first of those projects will air on Sunday, August 2, having used FrameTrunk’s remote production gallery to receive incoming feeds from remote locations to create a live rough cut for the gameshow that took place in six households across the UK. Each of the production team used FrameTrunk’s “FrameCentral” software to view a low-latency multiview feed during the broadcast, which FrameTrunk then delivered digitally to the show’s editors at their own homes.
Island Records’ One Love Covid-19 Relief Auction, organized to support NHS charities and Feeding America, included donations of private performances, memorabilia and concert tickets. For this production, FrameTrunk’s London HQ was used to collect the feeds from remote control hot head cameras in New York to provide a live vision mix. The charity auction video feed was then pushed live to YouTube, while the producers were able to access FrameTrunk’s virtual remote gallery from the safety of their own homes.
Established in 2014 by Joel Gilbert and James Hunter, FrameTrunk has offered broadcast solutions for a number of large productions for the likes of Viacom, Sky TV, MTV and more, and the demand for remote solutions has only increased due to the production lockdowns that began in March.
